iOS Dev Nugget 88 Hiding the Status Bar In Launch Screens

In #83: Match Status Bar Style in Launch Screen With Your App’s, I described how you can tweak Info.plist so the status bar shown when your app is launched matches the initial state of your app. What if you want to hide the status bar instead?

You can do it by editing your app’s Info.plist, adding a property called “Status bar is initially hidden” and selecting YES from the value dropdown.
